Pyramids May Be Drawing UFOs to Mexico

The pyramids of Egypt may get most of the attention from TV shows and treasure hunters. But the pyramids of Mexico seem to be getting attention from another world, especially the pyramids of Tlalnepantla. A UFO was spotted over one of them this week and it’s just the latest of numerous sightings in Tlalnepantla over the past few years. Are the pyramids’ builders coming back to admire their work or possibly put them up for sale?

The most recent Tlalnepantla UFO sighting occurred on October 10th over the Tenayuca Pyramid. Not much else is reported other than that the second flying object in the photo appears to be a plane.

The year 2008 appears to have been a big one for UFO sightings in Tlalnepantla. This one was seen on the night of November 29th, 2008. The orb was recorded on two cameras but the witness said only these short clips were clear enough to see it.


Another orb was spotted over Tlalnepantla on December 19th, 2008.


This daytime orb-shaped UFO was recorded over Tlalnepantla in the afternoon on June 20th, 2011, which the witness points out was Father’s Day. Is Father’s Day a galactic holiday? Do aliens like giving their Dads monkey cards too?


This close-up photograph of a UFO over Tlalnepantla was taken on February 14th, 2010. That’s Valentine’s Day. What’s with these UFOs and Earth holidays?

There are undoubtedly more sightings and more photos and videos. Are the pyramids really attracting them to Tlalnepantla?

Tlalnepantla was founded in the 11th century by the Amaquemecan people. The Santa Cecilia Acatitlan pyramid dates to the late Postclassic period (900–1519 AD) and was built to worship Huitzilopochtli (god of war and human sacrifice) and Tlaloc (god of rains and fertility). The Tenayuca Pyramid predates it and is famous for its wall of snakes and other serpent sculptures.

We know that UFOs are seen often around active volcanoes. Could the UFOs be mistaking them for volcanoes? There are many theories suggesting aliens helped build the pyramids of Egypt. While those in Mexico are smaller in scale, they are still sophisticated in design for such ancient builders. Were aliens involved in their construction? Are the pyramids of Tlalnepantla galactic directional signs?

The link between UFOs and the pyramids of Tlalnepantla remain a mystery … for now.
